Mexico and Injection Molding Come Together in New Event

As Mexico’s industrial base has grown, its burgeoning injection molding sector has blossomed along with it, evidenced by a new event coming this September.

In a little more than a month and a half, thought leaders in injection molding will gather in Querétaro for the inaugural Plastics Technology México Live event: Injection 360°—Trends in Plastics Molding. Taking place Sept. 27-28 at the ​Hotel Misión Juriquilla Querétaro, the event will feature multiple conference tracks, as well as atable-top exhibit area.

The capital city of the state of Querétaro in the central Mexican region of of Bajío, Querétaro is an ideal location for the event. Over the last decade “El Bajío” has become home to new plants for GM, Volkswagen, Honda, Toyota, Nissan and BMW, and it sits in the middle of Mexico’s industrial triangle of Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey.

The growing importance of the region (and molding) has not been lost on suppliers of injection molding machines with Arburg, Engel, KraussMaffei, Milacron, and more establishing divisions in Querétaro. Nor has it been lost on our sister publication, Plastics Technology México, which chose Querétaro and injection molding for its first ever live event.
